Bass Pro Shops XPS Diamond Drop Weights
Great shape, but ..........
I know that most consider drop shot weights to all be the same. Well, they are not.
The thin pencil shaped work best in rocks, the round are best on mud and sand bottoms, and the BPS diamond shape is the best for current.
I like to fish these in rivers and stream, even lakes with wind driven current or flows from elevation changes. The shape keeps them from rolling and moving down stream as easy.
I would have given them a 5, but I wish for brass instead of steel eyes. Brass won't cut the line as easy.

best drop shot weight by far
I have the round and pencil style which seem to be forever hanging up. Saw these and decided to give them a try. So far haven"t had a single hang up or snag. I really like these weights and have given some to my friends to try. So far they like these the best. If you're tired of losing weights, give these a try. You'll be suprised at the difference, plus they are in the same price range. Good deal for the money.

A must for drop shot
Tired of losing your weight when drop-shotting? This product is the answer! No need to re-tie a weight when all you do is just slip it on the line. The wieght DOES NOT come off very easily, thus is takes a little persuasion to get the wieght to come off when stuck on the bottom. Again, very highly recommend this product. Buy a couple of packs to get you thru a couple of fishing trips. --Casitas

XPS Diamond Drop Weights
These are very good weights for drop shotting, allowing you to fish heavy cover and rocks without losing your hooks and bait due to snags. The diamond weights are also slightly less expensive than the finesse or round styles of drop shot weights. Only 4 stars due to lack of larger package size. I go through a lot of these and would like to be able to purchase in bulk.
